Re: [IPk] MRI

 Minimed pumps are designed to withstand all common electrostatic and
electromagnetic interference , including airport security .
However the pump should always be removed or disconnected for a CT scan or
MRI or  any other form of radiation .
The pump could be damaged during these procedures and it is safer to take it
off for the investigation .
Have a good weekend in the sunshine .
[ we finally have a few rays in London ! ]
